Success Mantra #11- How to solve question papers- Rajyaseva Prelims 2018

Hi Friends

Here are last minute tips for you.

How to solve question papers- Rajyaseva Prelims 2018

Be positive, think positive. Remember, a cool mind can give you 100% success, so never lose your patience. If you get panicky then you will lose precious time. Relax.

What to wear, carry, etc:

§  Black Ball Pen – 02

§  Wrist Watch (make sure it is working perfectly). It must have second hand that shows seconds. सेकंद काटा दिसायला हवा.

§  Hall Ticket

§  Photo ID (दोन वेगवेगळे- आधार कार्ड व अजून एक. त्यांच्या झेरोक्स)

§  Water Bottle (आपल्या घरचं पाणी स्वस्थ असतं. 😊).

§  A good pair of socks (cleaned properly. No need to buy new pair)

§  A very good set of clothes. (If you wear decent clothes, your confidence will be on the higher side)

§  If you wear spectacles (eyeglasses), make sure they are in perfect condition.

§  Well polished shoes or good pair of Chappals.

§  No medicine of any type. (आज कोणत्याच प्रकारचं मेडिसिन खाऊ नये).

On 8th Apr 2018: 

§  Make sure that you got everything with you from the above list.

§  Star early from your home to avoid traffic jam etc. घरून लवकर निघा आणि दीड तास आधी पोहचा. ह्यावेळी BioMetrix तपासणी होणार आहे.

§  After reaching the exam center, check your exam Hall and find out where is your Seat Number.

§  Check for Toilet and go get yourself freshen up just before the exam. Remember, you will not be allowed to come out of exam hall.

§  In the exam hall, check your chair, if it is broken, get it replaced; otherwise you may not be able to concentrate on your paper.

§  Remove your wrist watch on the table so that you can have a look at it while answering the questions.

§  Check your Answer Sheet and read all instructions. If you are not able to understand anything, ask your examiner. Fill-up required information.

§  Quickly read the entire question paper when you are asked to open it. Check for printing mistakes, if any. This MUST be done in 5 minutes.

§  Start answering the question paper.

§  Do not get panicked if you find some questions difficult. As you already know that you are not gifted to understand each and everything. This is same with every one so do not get angry, either. Leave the most difficult questions and move on.

§  After paper is finished, YOU HAVE TO WRITE ON THE ANSWERSHEET, how many questions you have solved.

For GS Paper I:

§  Do not spend more than 40 seconds on one question at a time. The breakup of the time for entire duration is as follows:

§  100 questions – 120 minutes

§  5 min – initial reading  (11 AM to 11:05 AM)

§  100 min for 100 questions = 6000 seconds for 100 questions i.e. 60 seconds (1 minute) but utilize 45 secs for answering each question in the first round. You can make 2nd round using 15 secs for unanswered question. Leave very difficult question and move to next. (11:05 AM to 12:45 PM)

§  15 min – revision round – answer difficult  questions (12:45 PM to 1 PM)

§  Answer easy question first so that you gain confidence.

§  If you are doubtful about correct answer then try to eliminate 2 wrong options and then arrive at 100% correct answer between remaining 2 options. Both may seem to be right answers but you need to choose the BEST suitable answer.

§  Keep your eye on the wrist watch so that you monitor the seconds.

§  If you cannot answer a question in 45 seconds, leave it for next round. You can answer it in the last 15 minutes

§  After you have completed entire question paper within the 100 minutes, make another round of the remaining questions and try to answer them. Remember that you must answer all questions within this time i.e. (11:05 AM to 12:45 PM).

§  If you find that you cannot answer them, just leave them unanswered. Remember that wrong answers can draw penalty. For 1 wrong answer, 0.33% mark will be deducted; so be careful.

§  When you have used up the 100 minutes, i. e. at 12:45 pm, start revising your entire question paper from question number 1 till the last question. Check for the unanswered questions and try to answer them if you know the most correct answer. Do not answer it if you are unable to arrive at the right answer. This is to avoid the negative marking.

§  Stop writing exactly when the examiner warns you.

 For GS Paper II (CSAT):

§  Do not spend more than 40 seconds on one question at a time. The breakup of the time for entire duration is as follows:

§  80 questions – 120 minutes

§  5 min – initial reading  (3:00 PM to 03:05 PM)

§  100 min for 80 questions = 6000 seconds for 80 questions i.e. 1 minute 15 seconds per question but utilize 50 secs for answering each question in the first round. You can make 2nd round using 25 secs for unanswered questions. Leave very difficult question and move to next. (3:05 PM to 04:45 PM)

§  15 min – revision round – answer difficult  questions (04:45 PM to 5 PM)

§  Answer easy question first so that you gain confidence.

§  If you are doubtful about correct answer then try to eliminate 2 wrong options and then arrive at 100% correct answer between remaining 2 options. Both may seem to be right answers but you need to choose the BEST suitable answer.

§  Keep your eye on the wrist watch so that you monitor the seconds.

§  If you cannot answer a question in 45 seconds, leave it for next round. You can answer it in the last 15 minutes

§  After you have completed entire question paper within the 100 minutes, make another round of the remaining questions and try to answer them. Remember that you must answer all questions within this time i.e. (03:05 AM to 04:45 PM).

§  If you find that you cannot answer them, just leave them unanswered. Remember that wrong answers can draw penalty. For 1 wrong answer, 0.33% mark will be deducted; so be careful.

§  When you have used up the 100 minutes, i. e. at 04:45 pm, start revising your entire question paper from question number 1 till the last question. Check for the unanswered questions and try to answer them if you know the most correct answer. Do not answer it if you are unable to arrive at the right answer. This is to avoid the negative marking.

§  Stop writing exactly when the examiner warns you.

§  After paper is finished, YOU HAVE TO WRITE ON THE ANSWERSHEET, how many questions you have solved.

 During exam, if you feel tensed or sleepy then do this:

§  Stretch your legs and hands downwards and release them after 2 seconds. Do this 2 times.

§  Take deep breaths (inhale and then release it out after 2 seconds). Do this multiple times.

§  Think positively and do not get stressed by any means. Try to concentrate on the question rather than worrying about it.

 Good luck to you !

How to achieve your aim?

Dear Friends      [हे आर्टिकल मराठीमध्ये उद्या वाचू शकाल]

As MPSC declared the expected dates for the various exams to be conducted in 2018, many of you have started studying for those exams, be it Rajyaseva, STI, PSI or Asst Section Officer exam and many of you are under the process of procrastination, right? Waiting for the advertisement, isn’t it?

Great !

Here is an excerpt from my forthcoming 7th edition of MPSC Success Mantra – The Complete Manual. Just read it. It will definitely help you.

“……..as you already know what you wish to become then do not wait. Don’t stand still, take the next step immediately. Your decision will lead you to success. Start right now wherever you are. Throw away your doubts. Never be in doubt. Start studying right now. Those who wait for right time, never reach their goals because the right time never comes. You may have already read in my previous edition of success mantra or in the article on my blog that time will not wait for you, you have to take advantages of the time you have in your hands. Do not let it slip out of your hands.

How to achieve your aim?

Everyone has a dream, an aim. It could be the post of Deputy Collector or DySP/ACP, right?

I will tell you how to achieve your aim. Follow this exercise. The purpose of this exercise is to analyse what you have done in the previous week.

  • Take a plain paper and a pen of your choice.
  • Sit down and start noting what you have done in the previous week.
  • Note down whatever you have done. Make a list of topics that you have completed in the entire week. How many pages you have read and how many pages of Notes you have prepared.
  • Compare it with your study plan, if you have any.
  • Count the number of hours you studied every day in the previous week. Total it.
  • Count the number of hours you WASTED every day in the previous week. Total it.
  • You might get a shock of a lifetime.
  • Ask yourself “Is the study I have done in the previous week sufficient enough to achieve my aim?”
  • Now close your eyes and visualize your aim, what you wish to become.
  • If you wish to become Deputy Collector, with your eyes closed, visualize that you are sitting in the Deputy Collector’s chair. If you wish to become DySP/ACP, with your eyes closed, visualize that you are sitting in the DySP/ACP’s chair. Feel the power of that chair. Feel the prestige that is attached to the chair.
  • Now open your eyes.
  • Look at the paper of your achievements made in the previous week.
  • Ask yourself- “Is the current speed of my study OK? With this speed, will I be able to complete the entire syllabus in the time available to me before the next exam?”
  • If the answer is YES, don’t be satisfied with your speed of study. Increase your hard work. Try to put in your best efforts. Increase your speed to reading and making Notes.
  • If the answer is NO then sit down.
  • Take a plain paper and pen.
  • Prepare a well-written plan of action, study plan, with day to day completion of targets.
  • If you are employed or a college-going student, plan your studies for next few months with at least 4 to 6 hours every day. If you are preparing for MPSC exam on full-time basis then plan your studies for 8-10 hours every day.
  • Follow the study plan to the letter and spirit.

What……? You don’t have time to study?

Oh, come on dear. If you can’t find time for studies then forget your dream. It is so simple!!! One never gets time. You need to find it. Time never stops, you are the one who stops. Yes, you are the one who STOPS your own time. You are the one who stops your own progress. You have to find the time. You create the circumstances. Everything is in your hands so FIND THE TIME.

How to build your self-confidence?
Here is the right way to build your self-confidence.

  • Take shower (bath).
  • Wear nicest clothes. Wear well-polished shoes. Comb your hair properly.
  • Stand in front of a mirror.
  • Pull your chin up, stand erect and pull back your shoulders.
  • Take few deep breaths and exhale.
  • If your aim is to become Deputy Collector, by looking at your own eyes in the mirror, say this loudly and confidently “I am Anil Dabhade (put your name instead of my name here). I am the Deputy Collector of Nashik District. I am a well-known honest and non-corrupt officer.”
  • Repeat this statement for at least 12 times and see the difference. This will make your mind positive. This will also make your doubts vanish into thin air.

You are now a lot more confident than earlier.

Once you decide about what you wish to become in next 2-3 years, you are almost there.

Your success is a decision away. All you need to do is ACT, without wasting your precious time.

Take the first step: START YOUR STUDIES RIGHT NOW…………”
